To add to the conversation, I'm wondering several things.
1. Was there actually an outreach strategy to recruit for this type of technologist
profile? Was it communicated to the movement? We could have helped.
2. Why the decision on someone whose only relevant background as technologist is on US
corporate technology companies? As several people have pointed out, Luis doesn't seem
to have any relevant experience in enterprises that contribute to the larger social good;
some of them are significantly controversial (Rappi, Loft); and all of them seem to be
very much US-based.
3. Why a guy? It would have been significantly better to bring a woman into this position.
If the problem is retention, I actually think that a woman would have been a way better
fit to understand what's failing in terms of business culture that's creating
challenges to make people stay.
There are several other things that could be said about this decision but I think others
have already said them -- like the whole NFT & blockchain thing and the "fintech
for young people", which is already a huge, huge, huge red flag.
